Peter, Sally and the Sea
- Heather’s House of
Stories / Applause

event details

Hosted by Heather's House of Stories / Applause

PETER, SALLY & THE SEA is an enchanting tale about the power of the ocean to soothe worried minds, and a reminder that a little drop of kindness can make a big difference!

Peter worries A LOT so he likes to disappear into imaginary worlds where he is in charge! The rock pools at the beach are his favourite place where he can have crazy miniature adventures and still be home in time for tea. But Peter is lonely, the sea seems a little scary, and people aren’t always to be trusted. His worries can make him angry, and when Peter is angry sometimes he breaks things. One day an unexpected confrontation with a mysterious, grumpy old neighbour begins a magical healing journey that leads them both back to the sea.

Let Heather transport you on a magical, transformational adventure. A captivating storyteller she draws you close, listens, and always brings a ton of fun with this gorgeous tale of reconnection with the natural world and each other.

A perfect story for our time. Come find yourself at the seaside! A fun and uplifting shared experience for families.


“So lovely, you kept my four children (Age 3,3,6&8) absolutely rapt and

made me (42) cry! We all loved it!”

“A wonderful hour of make-believe with the charismatic Heather – Arlo

loved it and so did we (mum and dad) Thank you x ”

“A delightful story about dealing with change. Our Year 1’s were captivated

and loved the interactive parts. A great addition to our book week!”
